The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
S. H. Dunn (Schooner), aground, 23 Aug 1900

Full Text

A dispatch from Garden Island, Ont., says; "The schooner S. H. DUNN, owned by E. L. Kelsey of Detroit, and coal laden for Kingston, ran ashore on the Myles Shoal yesterday, but was released this morning. The vessel is leaking slightly, but the damages is not considered serious."
      Mr. Kelsey said last evening that the DUNN, formerly the W. R. TAYLOR, had 900 tons of coal aboard, from Charlotte for Kingston. His dispatches indicate that she is not injured enough to warrant drydocking, and she will continue on her regular trade. She was sailing alone when she stranded.
